Pulley Kit and Remap Package

Hi there. So I purchased an IBF reduced pulley earlier on in the year. After giving a read of the installation guide, I decided to leave it to a garage. Durham Remap and tuning have quoted Ł510 for the installation and a custom remap on the car, seeing as it also has a custom exhaust. The point that really caught my eye is the estimation of the power increase. The IBF pulley recons it will increase BHP by 35+/- and the remap claims to free up 30BHP too.. Does this mean I should expect to see a total of (giving the car hasnt lost too many ponies so roughly 160bhp) 220BHP give or take?

What is the boost increase (before/after) from the pulley? The horsepower increase from the tune seems unlikely if it's not increasing boost with the tune upgrade (I don't know if it's possible on that car).

Most marketing claims are fairly aggressive, and "best-case" ("up to") scenarios.
